Top 10 Walt Disney Animation Studios Princesses

A new trailer for Moana has been released, so I decided to make a list of the best Walt Disney Animation Studios princesses. Which means Merida can't be included since she's Pixar and Elena can't be included because she's from some stupid Disney Channel show.

The Top TenXW

1MulanFa Mulan, a character inspired by an actual historic figure is a character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 36th animated feature film Mulan, as well as its sequel Mulan II.

I love Mulan so much! Who doesn't!? She is awesome! She is the first Asian Disney princess and the first princess to not actually be a princess. But she's in the official Disney princess lineup because reasons. Mulan is very heroic and brave! She was willing to go into war to save her father and bring honor to her family! She masquerades as a boy and I have no idea how the other soldiers can't tell that she is a girl. Especially when three of them swam in a lake with her while she was naked. Lucky guys! At the end of the film she manages to save the day. So this shows that girls can be tough and heroic just as well. Mulan is a true heroine! And very beautiful! It's a shame that the SEQUEL totally ruined her character! - MegaSoulhero

I swear if Disney casts white people as Asian people in the live-action Mulan, I'll declare war on Disney. Mulan and London Tipton from Suite Life were literally the only Asian characters I could look up to growing up. My sister was even named after Mulan. They better get this right. - keycha1n

One of my favorite Disney princess's, the sequel RUINED HER. - Catacorn

Mulan is very brave to go in to war just so her father didn't have to

2BelleBelle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 30th animated feature film Beauty and the Beast.

Belle is probably the most realistic of the Disney princesses. She's just a normal girl who spends her time reading books and doesn't care about getting a boyfriend or living a wealthy life. She ends up doing that anyway but whatever. Belle is awesome and very beautiful. I can see why Gaston likes her. Although Gaston just treats her like any other girl in the town but Belle is much smarter than the other girls. There are guys who think all girls care about is makeup and looking beautiful and getting boys to notice them. But Belle is different. She's prefect just the way she is. I just hope Emma Watson doesn't ruin the character. - MegaSoulhero

Belle is one of the greatest protagonists in any Disney movie ever. She's kind, beautiful, smart, and sees the good in everybody. She doesn't care about wealth or the admiration of the town hero. She just wants to live a normal life reading, and doesn't want to go out and impress anybody. She does her own thing, and I can greatly respect that. - phillysports

3ElsaQueen Elsa of Arendelle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 53rd animated film Frozen.

Elsa is just a fantastic character. She's not like other Disney princesses in the fact that she's the only one to become a queen, and NOT turn evil. She's a shy, sympathetic character that you can really identify with. She has a lot of emotional turmoil in her life stemmed from her accidental harming of her little sister. She loves her sister and her people, and wants to protect them at any cost, even if that means secluding herself from the outside world. She's loving, beautiful, strong, intelligent, and just has so much life to her. Idina Menzel's portrayal of her was incredible. You can really feel her power every time she sings and in every line she delivers. Elsa is definitely one of my favorite characters in all of media, and I hope to see a lot more from her in Frozen 2. - phillysports

I know she's technically a queen but if I didn't include her, then I would have to try to think of good things to say about either Ariel or Pocahontas. And I hate both of them! So anyway, Elsa is a misunderstood girl who was born with ice powers. She reveals her powers to Arendelle, freezes the entire town, and runs away. The entire town treats her like a monster but we all know that she doesn't mean to harm anyone. She shot her sister in the heart but that was an accident. She actually cares about her sister and the reason she told her to go away was because she wanted her to be safe. Also that scene with her fighting off the guards was my favorite scene in the entire movie. I also like the fact that Elsa is voiced by Idina Menzel. Casting a Broadway star in the movie was genius. She definitely makes Elsa very memorable! - MegaSoulhero

4RapunzelRapunzel is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 50th animated feature film Tangled, and its short sequel Tangled Ever After. She is the tenth Disney Princess, the first Disney Princess to be CGI-animated, and the first Disney Princess to have freckles or green eyes.

Rapunzel can let her hair down for me any day! Rapunzel is a princess who was taken away from her parents by an evil woman who wants to stay young forever by using the power from Rapunzel's long blonde hair. All she wants to do is go outside because she was never allowed to leave the tower. Which makes me wonder how she knew how to swim later in the film. Rapunzel has proven to us that she knows how to take care of herself. When Flynn Rider sneaks into the tower, she hits him with a frying pan. I love Rapunzel so much but I have only one very minor complaint. I feel like Rapunzel has the weakest singing voice out of the Disney princesses. Which is odd since she's voiced by Mandy Moore. But other than that, Rapunzel is amazing! - MegaSoulhero

5TianaPrincess Tiana of Maldonia is a fictional main character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 49th animated feature film The Princess and the Frog.

Tiana has gotta be the most underrated princess ever! When I first heard that Disney was gonna make a movie about an African American princess, I was really excited! Tiana is such a great character! She's very independent, smart, and hard working. She has been very skilled at cooking ever since she was a kid. Another thing that makes her so great is that she is brave and can handle dangerous situations. Throughout the movie, she is constantly saving Prince Naveen. She even defeats the Shadow Man at the end. I really think there should be more princesses like Tiana. And less like Pocahontas! - MegaSoulhero

Tiana deserves some love! Yeah she's black but she deserves it, she's just as beautiful as the other princesses. - KianaLexi

6AnnaPrincess Anna of Arendelle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 53rd animated film Frozen.

I feel like I'm the only one who still likes Frozen. Anna is cute, funny, and very kind-hearted. As a child, she loved playing with her sister. But after Elsa strikes Anna with her inexplicable magic, her memory of Elsa's powers gets erased and they don't see each other until Elsa's coronation. She finds out about Elsa's powers and tries to find her after Elsa runs away. Anna is very caring towards her sister. She knows that Elsa is a good person unlike everyone else who want her locked up. I honestly don't see why people hate Anna but like someone as horrible as Ariel. At least Anna is loyal and learns her lesson. She learned not to be too trusting of someone. Since Hans basically left her to die. She's very likeable and I can't wait to see more Anna in the Frozen sequel! Did I just say "more Anna"? That kind of sounds like Moana. - MegaSoulhero

Anna is very much the anti-Disney princess Disney princess. "Oh, phillysports. What do you mean by that? " I'll tell you what I mean by that. In the beginning of the movie, Anna acts like a stereotypical Disney princess with all of the tropes such as falling in love with a guy she just met. However, as the film progresses you see that she is an active, determined, and adventurous spirit that's fueled by the love she has for her sister. She learns her lesson about not trusting people you barely know at the end of the film, and delivers Hans a punch in the face to go along with it. She also is really funny, and I personally love her quirky, bubbly personality. Also, I got to give props to Kristen Bell for really bringing this character to life. Oh, and don't worry MegaSoulhero. You're not the only one who still likes Frozen. - phillysports

7CinderellaPrincess Cinderella is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 12th animated feature film Cinderella and its sequels Cinderella II: Dreams Come True and Cinderella III: A Twist in Time.

I would take Cinderella to the ball anytime. Before she became a princess, she was basically a slave to her stepsisters and stepmother. And even though she was constantly forced to do the chores, she would always have a good attitude. She was very determined to go to the ball even though her stepmother won't let her. She didn't let her stepmother get in the way of her dream. So she went to the ball after being given dangerous slippers and a dress and meets the prince. And the prince chose to dance with Cinderella out of all the other girls. I still consider them one of the worst Disney couples but it's still nice he chose her. And she deserved to have a happy ending after all she's been through. Even when Tremaine locked Cinderella in her room, she didn't give up on going after her dream. Unlike the live action version in which she gave up and got out by plot convenience! Well, at least it's better than Pocahontas learning English from THE WIND! - MegaSoulhero

Cinderella started the whole being a princess thing, I mean I didn't really care about Snowwhite, but this one is by far the most beautiful princess and one of their really kindests. - alimarashian

8ArielPrincess Ariel is a fictional character and the title character of Walt Disney Pictures' 28th animated film The Little Mermaid.V1 Comment
9Snow WhiteSnow White is a fictional character and Disney's first princess. Snow White is the only princess with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Snow White! The only Disney princess with a last name! Well actually Moana has a last name too. It's Waialiki. And coincidentally Moana is the same age as Snow White. Anyway, Snow White is the first ever Disney princess. She spends her day hanging out with animals and singing to them while they help clean which was parodied in the film, Enchanted. She meets the Seven Dwarves when they find her in their house and takes good care of them. She is very kind but I feel like she is too kind. She invites Queen Grimhilde (disguised as an old hag) into the Dwarves' home. She takes a bite out of an apple and temporarily dies. This is why you don't trust old people. But other than that, Snow White is a very likeable princess. - MegaSoulhero

From Disney's Aladdin, it's Princess Jasmine! A princess who is forced to be married at such a young age and has to choose a suitor worthy of taking the hand of the princess. I don't understand why the sultan didn't change that rule. It's kind of ridiculous. Jasmine sneaks out of the palace and heads to the market in which she meets Aladdin. I really like Jasmine because even though she's the princess of Agrabah, she wants be like a normal girl. She's basically the opposite of Ariel from the Little Mermaid. She didn't want to be pushed into marriage. She knew she would find true love when the time was right. My main concern with Jasmine is that she didn't recognize Aladdin when he was dressed as Prince Ali. But overall, Jasmine is a great character and very hot! - MegaSoulhero

The Contenders

11EsmeraldaEsméralda, born Agnès, is a fictional character in Victor Hugo's 1831 novel The Hunchback of Notre-Dame.

From the film The Hunchback of Notre Dame, she was a gypsy gathering money for her kind which whom Claude Frollo despises. During dancing through the streets of France, there he met Phoebus but the soldiers of the cathedral caught her but was saved by the man in golden shield and armor. During the Festival of Fools, there he met Quasimodo which he gave him justice for his foolish looks and prayed for him, At the end she was saved by the two men he befriended, Phoebus and Quasimodo. She was cutted in the franchise due to a reason where her movie has a dark origin but that does not mind me at all, She is a great icon where justice should be everywhere. - ArigatoKawaii


" But every once in a while, there's a day when I don't have to be a princess. No lessons, no expectations. A day where anything can happen. A day I can change my fate" -Merida

Seriously?! Esmeralda is better than Merida?! She should be number 2

Merida isn't even a Walt Disney Animation Studios Princess. Who even added her to this list? - MegaSoulhero

Princess Merida of DunBroch (Scottish Gaelic: Mèrida) is the main character from the 2012 Disney Pixar film Brave. Merida was added to the Disney Princess line-up as the 11th Princess and the first Pixar character to receive the honor

That's right! She's Pixar! Which means she shouldn't be on this list at all! - MegaSoulhero

From the film, Sleeping Beauty, we have Aurora! A princess who was cursed by Maleficent to get back at the king and queen for not inviting her to their party. Although it's never explained why they didn't invite Maleficent. Aurora is a princess that not too many people talk about. She's very nice and pretty and teaches people to follow their dreams. But my main concern is that she barely has any screen time in her own movie! I wish we got to see more of her but then again, it's called Sleeping Beauty for a reason. - MegaSoulhero

14PocahontasPocahontas is a title character in Disney's 33rd animated feature film Pocahontas, and its direct-to-video sequel Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World.
